Profile Content Internship & studying abroad Career prospects

A wide range of career opportunities

In a modern and broadly diversified professional field

Mechatronics engineers can be competently employed as "all-rounders" both in mechanical engineering and in electrotechnical environments. Typically, they develop systems, and for this they need a general and far-reaching technical knowledge. This is why they are in great demand in industry - e.g. as development engineers, project managers or, at a later stage, in technical management.

With the master's degree, you specialize in your field and deepen your academic skills. Thus, for example, you are also entitled to carry out a doctorate, which you can also do in cooperation with a university in the doctoral colloquium at HKA. Please contact us!

Typical fields of activity are:

  • Academia, research and development
  • Production, manufacturing
  • Technical consulting
  • Sales, marketing, service

The most common industries are:

  • Mechanical and plant engineering
  • Electrical engineering and electronics
  • Automotive and aviation industry
  • Industrial Automation
  • Robotics microsystems and precision engineering
  • Print and media technology
  • Audio and video industry
  • Medical technology
